5'5" Bee's Knees

Thursday, June 06, 2013
Shaper/bee keeper  Jon Wegener (brother of famous groovy surf dude Tom Wegener) is adapting well to living the Leucadia lifestyle; farming, making interesting surfboards and surfing the mushiest waves in all of San Diego county.
5'5" x 21" x 2 5/8"
Single foil marine ply keels make this thing sweet as honey.
Check out Weg's boards at Surfy Surfy.

*Jon has pointed that it is his wife Rosa in the beekeeper suit in the first photo. Jon says Rosa does most of the bee handling but he is getting better at it. Apologies for the mix up Rosa. 


  1. He's back from Australia?

    1. Brothers Tom and Jon Wegener both make groovy surfboards. Tom is in Australia, Jon is in California.

    2. Also, there is brother Curt who is a commercial fisherman.

  3. Its like the Wilson Brothers of film except with wood: Tom would be Owen, and there's Jon, he'd be Luke; and last there'd be Kurt-- he's Andrew Wilson.

  4. Which is 5'5? The board or the beekeeper? ;)

  5. Respect to pro skateboarder Tom Sims for inventing the mini-simms design in the 1940s.
